BEWARE OF MR. “NICE” GUY – THE BEHAVIORAL STUDY OF A PRENATAL ECT VICTIM.

MR. “NICE” GUY OR MR. NOT SO “NICE” GUY?

“One day Marty Rathbun told me that he had scared a staff member so badly he [expletive—pooped in] his pants. Rathbun had a smile while recounting the story, like it was some sick ‘trophy.’

“Rathbun is a psycho/thug, a real one, like Jack Nicholson in The Shinning. He is also a real life Jekyll and Hyde—one moment a smiling friendly guy with his arm around someone—minutes later trying to punch the person out in a psycho rage.” An Ex-Associate

MR. “NICE” GUY

WHAT DID YOU DO?

“I roughed up [name]. I threw him across a table.” – Mark Rathbun

MR. NOT SO “NICE” GUY

WHAT DID HE DO?

“Marty screamed at me, reached over the desk and grabbed me by my shirt and pulled me out of my chair across the desk, dragging me down the table knocking over books, kits and everything on the table. After he dragged me across tables, he threw me up against a wall and screamed at me more. I was not even sure what he wanted me to say, but I was physically abused to the point where I was very scared as I was much smaller than him and I was willing to say anything at that point. He then grabbed me suddenly again and dragged me across a wall knocking off a picture and threw me through 2 doors and down a flight of stairs. At that point I broke down and started crying and asked him to please stop. His conduct was shocking and actually psychotic.” – A Young Man

OOPS!

MR. “NICE” GUY

WHAT DID YOU DO?

“I had my share of people that I slapped around too.” – Mark Rathbun

(To the SP Times)
MR. NOT SO “NICE” GUY

WHAT DID HE DO?

“I worked as Marty Rathbun’s Secretary…. In order to intimidate staff, he used violence and physical threats. During product conference he would go into violent outbreaks and rages. In one particular instance when he did not like the answer he received, he got pissed off and went into a rage, ripped the phone out of the wall and threw it across the conference room table so it hit the shelf and only barely missed a staff member. In other instances he threw an uncapped highlighter at a staff member, leaving marks on the wall and again only barely missing the person. At the same time he was threatening them in a loud voice with breaking their legs and uttering expletives. He would also be belittling and ridiculing to the point where I just didn’t want to be near him as it was likely going to become physically and mentally painful.

“In one instance I saw him physically attacking a staff member

and slamming him against the wall when the staff member wasn’t answering what Rathbun wanted to hear. In another instance he tackled another staff member and physically threw him to the ground, because Rathbun was not satisfied with the answer he was given.” – His Ex-Secretary

OOPS!

MR. “NICE” GUY

WHAT DID YOU DO?

“I abused him on 20 occasions. I severely laid into him in an abusive fashion, cursing and invalidating him very loudly in front of others. On 7 occasions I boxed his ears or wrestled him to the ground. Once I hurt his ears pretty severely where I could tell it hurt him through the rest of the day.” – Mark Rathbun
MR. NOT SO “NICE” GUY

WHAT DID HE DO?

“Let’s put Rathbun into the correct perspective. Without a doubt, this man is psychotic. He’s a psychotic and a bully.

“He used to constantly dramatize a scene out of The Honeymooners TV show—the part where Jackie Gleeson threatens to hit someone with the lines “One of these days Alice…pow! to the moon!” It was uncanny. Rathbun would say the lines and go through the motions of socking somebody and then laugh out loud. But he would then do this same action in real life, without acting.

“You could be standing up in front of him making a report while he sat behind his desk and if he didn’t like what you were saying, he would all of a sudden flip, start clenching his jaw and fists and start shaking and suddenly come round the desk and let loose with a punch. At least 5 or 6 times he did this to me—came round the desk with his right arm winding up for a punch and punched me real hard. Once he hit me full force in the chest so hard, it sent me reeling back to collide with the counter and fall backwards to strike my head on a wall-shelf. I saw stars and hurt my back.

“On perhaps a dozen occasions, Rathbun had broken out in a fit of rage and came rampaging into my office while I was working. From behind me, for no reason at all, and with no warning to alert me, he would swipe me from behind the head, often dealing a severe blow.

“On more than one occasion he came running into my office and from behind, took a massive football kick at my chair and sent me sprawling onto the ground and then started yelling at me while kicking me on the ground.

“On 3 or 4 occasions, in a conference with other people present, he dived across the conference room table and knocked me off my chair onto the floor and then started punching me and kicking and yelling at me.

“He was really nuts on the subject of physical violence. And then to top it, he would come by a few hours later and say, “Hi, how’s it going?” and be smiling and put his arm around me. It was like some horror movie and frankly some of the most fearful times of my life.

“Once he spoke to me about the beatings and told me that I was committing a massive transgression on him because he didn’t want to do this, but I was making him hit me and thus making him commit an overt. This was really psycho and I started avoiding him all I could because I did not know what he would do next.

“When Rathbun was taken off post it was a huge relief in my life.”- A Man in his 60s

OOPS!

MR. “NICE” GUY

WHAT DID YOU DO?

“I roughed up [name] on three occasions. In November 2000, I threw him up against a wall. I then grabbed him and forcibly led him outside into private for a tongue-lashing. In January 2001, I chased him and tackled him and down the stairs and shoved his head into the corner holding his jaw for several seconds. In May 2001, I threw him across a table.” – Marty Rathbun

MR. NOT SO “NICE” GUY

WHAT DID HE DO?

“He was a vicious person—I know, as he was vicious with me and he terrorized people.

“This is a person that has violently attacked me for no reason on more than one occasion. In one instance Rathbun personally attacked me, causing me physical harm and bounced me from a wall.

“In another instance, he punched me and banged my head into a wall, inadvertently knocking a photo down. This not only cut my head but was mortifying. Rathbun, true to his ways, made a point that I ‘should fix the picture I damaged’ which shows his demented state.

“I have seen Mark Rathbun jump on a staff member and bring him to the ground, and I experienced the displeasure of such actions from him. He operated to create fear and would inflict some punishment if you got on the wrong side of him. If you want to talk about culture, his culture is not with us.” Ex-Associate

OOPS!

HOW DID HE GET AWAY WITH IT?

“I did things behind Chairman of the Boards back. He didn’t know what I was doing.

“I engaged in a campaign to covertly and systemically take out and undermine any executive or staff who might expose me.” – Mark Rathbun

OOPS!

“The true character of these people is usually masked in many ways. They are expert only in deception and can take any guise. To listen to them one would suppose he was talking to his best friend sometimes. Except the knife in one’s back is also driven in by them.” — L. Ron Hubbard
